So, a baseball player who is probably 18 years old gets caught with dip.  What a surprise!  Sucks for him to get suspended for a whole season, but I'm assuming he knew what the rules were.

I bet when DVH found out he probably laughed.

Absolutely absurd over-reaction by a school.  We see recruits in other sports (not necessarily at Ark) being arrested, attacking school guards, and the like and being suspended for a couple of games.  Kid breaks out a can of Skoal and misses the entire year?  Nuts.

So on to the real topic.   Does this hurt or help our chances of getting him to campus?

Less exposure to scouts so less interest?

Or

More time to go pitch in front of scouts at private workouts?

I understand that they are trying to stop kids from dipping but if they want too they are going to do it anyways and to be suspended for an entire season is a ridiculous punishment IMO.

Sounds like Patten will play in the Iowa Spring League sponsored by PG.  Maybe he gets teamed with McKinney and they realize how fun it is to play together.

Overkill. Punish him if need be, but for the whole year?

I agree it is overkill for dipping tobacco.  Although he better realize he is coming to a tobacco free campus. LOL!!!

I would be willing to bet several of the players dip.  I saw a story on Yahoo about the use of dip in the MLB and why players do it.

So guys, your question was what such a harsh punishment? Well, I was in his class and I was on his baseball team, and the reason for such a harsh punishment was because it was a repeated offense. Yes, Patten had been caught with dip two previous times.

Bringing up this thread title during fall ball about a current player is really not cool. 

and your story does not make me look at the situation and go "oh yeah.. he definitely should have been suspended for the year - even though it seems that was your intention.
